Owner description: Welcome to Horse Trek'n. We have a brand new team of very dedicated young ladies this season, ready to take you on an unforgetable adventure. All rides are now split between different riding ablities, so if you are a genuine experienced rider, we garanty you'll have a fabulous experience. Our horses are well trained and take part in our riding school, jumping and dresage, as well as trail riding. For experienced riders, we recommend you try our full day trek so you get a chance to swim with your horse, but if you only have half a day, the volcano ride will offer you fabulous 360 views of the Bay of Islands and the Waitangi Forest. See you soon!

We are not experienced riders at all, so looked forward to something a bit different. It was a hot day and prior to leaving, we asked about water along the way. We were told that we would be too busy concentrating on handling our horses that we would not even realise we were thirsty! We left but there were two... More

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to write a review. If we sent 2 guides on foot with your group, it would have been entirely for safety for some specific reasons, such as a number of young children, fearfull people on the ride, langage barrier... etc.The girls are very fit and they do walk at the same pace...

Both my partner and I had had experience riding in the past but hadn't been on a horse for a good few years so were excited for this opportunity. We were lucky enough to be the only ones in the group thy afternoon so had a private trek which was fantastic. We were able to trot and canter if we... More

I really enjoyed this ride. I was given a horse adequate for my experience (more or less experienced) and I was in a group with 2 other girls that also had some experience. So we were able to trot and canter along the trek. Unfortunately it was raining that day. The owner offered us rain coats so that we could... More

A friend and I decided to book a horse ride at sunset on New Year's Eve. I have only been horse riding once so not an experience rider at all. However, the two guides gave us both a fantastic experience - we walked through bush and as we came out on the gravel the guides taught us how to trot... More

Thank you to Claire, Christina and Elizabeth, both Zoe and I really enjoyed our morning trek to the Volcano on Friday with you. Probably the most picturesque trek I have been on! Great horses, great location.

I went on this trek with my friend. The horse I was assigned to– came with the instructions that he had an attitude, to take a stick, and he would get away with anything he could. Although not highly experienced – I do own two hack horses, am not a first time rider and do have the basic skill of... More

I'd never even sat on a horse before going to Horse Trek'n, but they made me feel quite comfortable. They were very professional and competent when teaching the basics, and then everyone was quite friendly. The 2-hour trek is lovely, though for those with experience I would warn that it may prove a bit dull, since policy is to walk... More

I am a fairly experienced rider but chose to join the beginners ride as my partner and his sister-in-law are both inexperienced. The horses seemed to be well looked after and lovely but the track was very boring and it looked out over a lot of deforested areas. Didn't feel like we were riding through forest to be honest. The... More

Sorry to hear the writter didn't enjoy the experience. Mixed rides are often a chalenge for the guides as it is difficult to please both beginners and experineced riders on the same ride. We have taken these last two reviews on board though and are aiming to send 2 guides out in these situations so the rides can be split.... More
